ike most Palisadians, we are settled into the routine of a new school year. The days are shorter and the nights are cooler, which makes it so nice to enjoy an evening stroll after dinner. It’s moments like these that allow your stream of consciousness take over, and hopefully those thoughts find their way to paper. Jasmyne Boswell reminds us that we have the right to write with the topic of memoirs. The anticipated wait of the securely kept Caruso project – The Palisades Village –has come to an end. Like most endings, it’s really just the beginning. And what a beautiful beginning it is! Inside this issue, we meet Anine Bing, designer and shop owner, who brings her effortless sense of cool to women and children of the westside.   Local long-time resident and photographer, Tom Rapier, shares his heightened visions of architecture from cities all over the world. As always, we want to thank our advertising partners, contributors and everyone else who makes this magazine possible. We simply couldn’t do it without you, nor would we want to. In gratitude, Jennifer & Gregg Champion

HOW WILL YOU BE

REMEMBERED?

A

fter weeks, months or years of thinking about writing your memoir, you’ve finally decided it’s time. You’re both excited and nervous. You scan your memory and start gathering thoughts about the particular time period or lifechanging event you want to write about until the day comes when you enthusiastically sit down at your computer or take pen and paper to a coffee shop and begin. Then it hits you. Where do I start? What should I include? What should I leave out? Your past looms over you in a thousand fragmented phrases. All the anticipation and passion you’ve brought to this moment springs a leak and is slowly but surely reduced to a tragic puddle. You sit, staring at the blank page. You still want to write but suddenly the enormity of the project hits you like the face of a 40-foot wave. You’re paralyzed by the size of the task. If you haven’t gotten to this point, I might sound a bit dramatic. But if you have, I hope you’re laughing in recognition of your moment of truth. All kidding aside, what I’ve just iterated is the reason many writers get to this very point in their creative venture and never go any further. If you’ve reached this stumbling block and still want to proceed, consider the following:

12 The Palisades  |  October/November 2018

Start by writing the Introduction or Prologue to your Memoir. Think of your introduction as a preview of a coming attraction. It’s where you show and tell all the benefits readers will reap from your work. It’s where you highlight all the advantages you hope they’ll gain from the insights, observations, experiences and lessons you share. Writing the introduction helps clarify the purpose of writing your story. From this clarity, write a list or outline of the main events your memoir will cover. These are usually the ones that strike an emotional chord in you, touching a universal truth that will also be interesting to your reader. Now you’re ready to choose one of those events and start writing. When you don’t focus on the monumental undertaking but instead take small steps, you’re more likely to enjoy the journey to the finish line. If you have a hard time remembering events, take a walk down memory lane with your photo albums. Those old photos will surely be a substantive catalyst. And you can always give yourself creative license where memory fails. Oh, and before it’s too late, I’d like to share a couple of insights with you. The first one is about sharing your work with friends or relatives. I have a client who is an excellent

...WRITING YOUR MEMOIR CAN ALMOST BE EQUATED TO GIVING BIRTH. IT IS AN EXTREMELY PERSONAL MATTER. IT IS YOUR CREATION.

writer and has published a number of successful books. His most recent book, however, is his first memoir. His sister came to visit over the holidays and with enthusiastic innocence, he asked her to read a few chapters. Not a writer herself, she didn’t realize the crushing effect her words carried when she said, “Why would you want to write about all that stuff that happened so long ago? Besides, you got it all wrong.” I tell you this for a few reasons. One, family members will notoriously have different versions of the same story. One of my favorite quotes about memoirs is, “Anyone who believes you can’t change history has never tried to write his memoirs.” David Ben-Gurion. The second one is that writing your memoir can almost be equated to giving birth. (Men and women who have not given birth, think of your most creative endeavor.) It is an extremely personal matter. It is your creation. As Montaigne says, “It is not my deeds that I write down, it is myself, my essence.” Even though you may think you are ready for objective feedback, if you’re a first-time writer, you probably aren’t. Giving constructive feedback is an art. Most people, as hard

Bing-o DESIGNER ANINE BING BRINGS HER CONTEMPORARY FASHION SENSE AND SENSIBILITY TO THE PALISADES

WRITTEN BY ALISA WOLFSON | PHOTOGRAPHY BY NICOLA BUCK


B

Before making a name for herself as a fashion designer, Copenhagen-native Anine Bing was a model who dreamed of becoming a midwife. “When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a jewelry designer or a midwife. I love children, so I became a mom and a clothing designer instead,” Bing shares. In just six short years, the namesake brand she began solely marketing on Instagram has grown to include 10 brick and mortar shops around the globe. With boutiques in New York City, Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, London, Madrid and Barcelona, the Palisades is her first foray into a smaller space. “I love the neighborhood ambiance and I wanted the store to feel more personal and cozier than our other big L.A. store,” says Bing. Since starting the company in her garage in 2012, Bing explains she’s had to learn and conquer every

aspect of the business first hand. “I’ve packed orders, I’ve handled customer emails and now I have a team of 50-plus people.” She’s also a firm believer in the age-old adage that nothing comes for free. “You have to work hard,” she says. And her tireless work ethic comes partly from her Danish upbringing. “Life in Denmark was very simple and very different from here. It grounded me and got me off to a good start in life, but there’s something very magical about L.A. too.” She credits the city’s creative culture with giving people the opportunity to feel powerful and like they can achieve whatever they want. And although her company is based Downtown, Bing actually considers the Westside woman to be her prime customer. “Women on this side of town are really chic but still casual — they’re effortless,” Bing says. And it’s here, among other places that her

ingenuity prospers. “I find inspiration anywhere, there’s so much of it.” From personal interactions with people wearing interesting things to perusing flea markets, watching old movies and referencing books, she intends for her designs to be clothes that people can actually wear. “A lot of fashion brands complicate things and they look great on a runway, but in real life it doesn’t work,” she says.

Not only is Bing’s line practical, it’s one that can take a woman from day to night. “You can drop your kids off at school, go to a board meeting and grab a drink with friends while feeling good in your own skin,” she remarks. And she would know — as a business woman and mother of two, she’s no stranger to needing an outfit that complements the many responsibilities she juggles in any given day. “When I’m in the design October/November 2018  |  The Palisades 17


WITH EVERYTHING BING DOES, BE IT PARENTING OR LAUNCHING A NEW COLLECTION, SHE STANDS BY HER SIMPLE YET PROFOUND MOTTO, “BE TRUE, BE YOU.”

studio with my team, we’re coming up with concepts, making mood boards with fabrics and looking at sketches. When I’m home, I’m having fun with the kids. We swim, make art—I’m very creative so I try to do creative stuff with them. I used to be in a band so I play music with them.” Earlier this year, after listening to her kids ask for leather jackets and cool t-shirts and realizing there was a hole in the market for this apparel genre, she launched Bing Kids: a line of 18 The Palisades  |  October/November 2018

unisex rock n’ roll clothing for children ages two to 10. “It’s a fun part of the business,” she says. With everything Bing does, be it parenting or launching a new collection, she stands by her simple yet profound motto, “Be true, be you.” For her, being true to herself is defined by her view of success — being able to do it all. “I wanted to be a mom and I wanted to build a business and I didn’t want to do either or. To me, success is actually being able to balance it all.

I HOPE PEOPLE REMEMBER ME FOR BEING POSITIVE AND INSPIRING OTHER WOMEN AND PEOPLE TO FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS. I’m not saying it’s easy, but it feels like a privilege to be able to do what I love and wake up happy,” offers Bing. Being able to do what she loves is likely the product of an important lesson her parents instilled in her at a young age. “They taught me to be myself. I feel really lucky that every day doesn’t seem like work.” And it’s her strong sense of self that radiates around those in her vicinity. “I always go with my gut,” she remarks of her design and business choices. She jokes that her gut also controls her biggest vice — Swedish candy. “I love sugar! I love salty licorice and sour candy from Sockerbit on Third Street,” Bing says. Another place she finds fulfillment is in giving back. Bing is an active volunteer in organizations like Baby2Baby and Unicef. “I love helping others. I think it’s so important to help children, who, for example, are not growing up in the Palisades and who don’t have the same privilege as our kids,” she explains. She’s also keen on building and maintaining relationships with the people who shop in her stores. “I love the relationships I build with the women who wear the brand,” Bing says. Thanks to social media, she’s able to communicate with her global clientele and hear feedback, both positive and negative. “Social media has been amazing for my brand,” Bing shares. At the end of the day though, she acknowledges that while business success may come and go, having strong core values in life is what creates a steadfast foundation and that’s the legacy she’s trying to create. “I hope people remember me for being positive and inspiring other women and people to follow their dreams,” Bing says.

ON THE NIGHTSTAND What book are you reading right now?

YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE IN ORDER TO GET What do you do to change the world?

THE ZEN SPACE FOR YOUR CREATIVITY What place in the Palisades gives you the most inspiration? Aside from having coffee in my living room or on my deck, I get so much inspiration on my walk to the farmer’s market. At the market, I treat myself to freshly cut flowers and fruits and vegetables for the week! And, on the way home, I stop at the park benches above my house to take in the vast views of the ocean from Asilomar Boulevard. That spot always reminds me of how grateful I am to live where I do. Never stop dreaming!

You might wonder why I’m reading my own book? I’ve been super flattered by the positive response to it, and people keep saying it should be a TV show (even the LA Daily News)! People love the irreverence and crack up over my journey from being an average C-student to a boardroom broad. So, now I am re-reading it with fresh eyes (and it is kinda funny!). OY, I am a Jewish Lucy Ball (although, I don’t have a Ricky)!

I have a sponsored daughter, Srey Meas (who I got to meet in Phnom Pen) through the Children’s Cambodia Fund. We’ve been in each other’s lives since she was four and now she is 13! Friends say that what I do for this girl is incredible, but I think it’s the opposite; it’s what she has done for me. She gives me a daily perspective and appreciation for what we have in the US. The women I invest in, advise and coach, remind me every day we are a part of a special tribe, and we don’t have to have all the answers. Supporting women is the gift that keeps on giving and together we will change the world.

COMFORT FOOD Where is the place in or near the Palisades you go for the right meal every time? My favorite spot in the neighborhood is the Golden Bull. The bar is fun and cozy, and the restaurant has been remodeled. It’s much more tres chic; however, I love it because it’s still a “joint.” – it’s my new Regal Beagle (now I am aging myself)!


HOME SWEET HOME What made you call Pacific Palisades your home?

THE POWER OF INFLUENCE Who has been the most influential person in your life? My mother and stepmother are my role models and mentors. My mother, Phyllis Caskey was the CEO of a nonprofit, the Hollywood Entertainment Museum, which also helped at-risk youth, and my Stepmother, Corinne Holzman, is Vice President at Equity Title Company. My moms showed me I can do anything and encouraged me to chase my dreams including moving to the Palisades.

OH, TO BE 18 AGAIN! What would I tell my 18-year-old self? I often think about this question when I’m speaking to women’s empowerment groups of all ages. I wish I had known that the things I stressed about were going to be a blip on the radar. I would say, Tami, Take chances; be yourself; Be empathic to everyone around you; Understand it’s your relationships with people that matter most; No one is perfect; We are all scared. And I’d remind myself it’s okay I didn’t make the HS cheerleading team because at the HS reunion, I was able to fit into my best friend’s cheerleading uniform! Hee…hee!

Can we discuss their happy hour? Yummy nummy! Wine, five bucks, Caesar Salad $7, Steak Tartar $8, Burger $11…Stop it! (Maybe I shouldn’t be sharing this with you, or I won’t get a seat!

I was living in Santa Monica, and it was time to invest in a property. I was particular about where I wanted to live. It had to be on the west side, no further than east of Brentwood, no further than south of Santa Monica, and no further than Malibu at Sunset Boulevard.

Their love for me is their priority. I’m a pretty lucky daughter!

One day, my twin Sean, and I were perusing (lowballing) my dream neighborhoods online, and we stumbled on the Tahitian Terrace at PCH and Temescal; a mobile home community! Once I saw the view, I knew I could build the most magical home there (and I did). It’s an architectural diamond that is the equivalent of my dream penthouse hotel room. The best part is the smiles and the joy I see when my guests are having a cocktail, dancing in my living room, and looking out at the Pacific Ocean with all the windows open! I even have bathroom soaps from Geary’s that say, “Welcome to Tami’s trailer!” Who knew??

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention all the Princess Warrior Goddesses I surround myself with – my best friends and all the women I work with who are shooting for the stars. Shout out to my two favorite neighbors, Ann (a Holocaust survivor from Germany) and Nechama (from Israel). They never slow down, and their zest for life makes me smile. Don’t tell them, but I call them my Betty Whites. They make me giggle every day!

back-to-school. All school supply donations collected during the ‘Party in the Park’ are bundled and sent to over 537 kids living in 34 domestic violence shelter locations throughout California.

PARTY IN THE PARK Sending our kids to school each fall with a backpack laden with newly sharpened pencils, notebooks and other tools for school success is something most parents and children in the Palisades tend to take for granted. If you’re a mother or child living in a domestic violence shelter, stocking up on school supplies is often not a priority or even a possibility. To lend a helping hand, local families gathered in Simon Meadow for the Fifth Annual PRESENT NOW ‘Party in the Park’ on July 15th, where they enjoyed food and fun for a cause - to support children living with domestic violence. Attendees came bearing backpacks and school supply donations, hoping to make this year’s back-to-school season a little easier for young victims. Cotton candy, frozen yogurt and a giant tent earned laughter from event-goers. Both adults and children volunteered their time, selling homemade cookies, lemonade and even ‘magic’ slime for PRESENT NOW, a Santa Monica-based non-profit that arranges for children living in domestic violence shelters to receive supply-filled backpacks for

It was a great way for me to help the community and raise money for school supplies. Hopefully the kids who receive them will be surprised!” ‘Party in the Park’ event sponsors provided food and entertainment, including Palisades Garden Café, The Yogurt Shoppe, Wondertent, Cold Brew Bros, LA Kids Giving Back and Amazing Kid Company. Once donations are sorted and packed, PRESENT NOW personally delivers them to the shelters in the Los Angeles area. Some donations will be delivered with the help of Door To Door Valet Cleaners and UPS. RON ROBINSON SHOPPING EVENT There is no doubt that the generosity of the community helps to make PRESENT NOW’s efforts possible. The nonprofit hosts many small drives and fundraisers throughout the year, engaging with local businesses and the Los Angeles community. One such local partnership took place on Saturday, September 8th at the Ron Robinson clothing and lifestyle flagship store in Santa Monica. Over 75 PRESENT NOW fans came out for this third annual fundraiser, to enjoy refreshments and family activities, all while shopping for a cause.

“From a young age, I knew I wanted to be in a helping profession,” says Erica. “I taught seventh grade before receiving my Masters in Social Work from New York University. Once I started my own family, I searched for a balance between being a stay-at-home mom and continuing to give back to children. PRESENT NOW was born out of that desire.”

PRESENT NOW was founded in 2012 by friends Erica Fisher and Melanie Neumann and is dedicated to supporting children and teens entering and living in transitional domestic violence shelters. Its mission is to provide disadvantaged children with both essential goods and specialty items to help bring them joy, comfort and relief during a time of crisis.

The ‘Presents’ Program assists mothers and their children entering domestic violence shelters. The program consists of three presents given throughout a child’s stay at the shelter; the Presence of Mind box is given in August and contains a new backpack filled with school supplies. The Presence of Love box is delivered on Valentine’s Day and

the Presence of Being box is presented on the child’s birthday. “I don’t think I realized when we started the program how much relief we would also be bringing the mothers of the children we support,” confesses Melanie. “We’ve received letters and notes from the mothers saying, ‘thank you’ because they wouldn’t have been able to buy their child a birthday gift.” To date, PRESENT NOW has donated and delivered over 3756 gifts and counting to children living in domestic violence shelters throughout California.

Awareness month, and according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one out of 15 children are exposed to domestic violence each year in the United States. “Our goal is to continue reaching more children and we have looked at expanding our footprint in a deeper way throughout the state of California and even nationally,” says Erica. “As an organization, we feel fortunate for every single donation - both big and small.”

“For those who want to help others, I would absolutely encourage them to follow their heart and take action.” PRESENT NOW has a volunteer program that runs throughout the year. Anyone is welcome to join the volunteer database to help with quarterly present stuffing and shelter deliveries. For a full schedule of upcoming events or to get involved, visit the PRESENT NOW website. All funds raised support and expand the gifting program.

PRESENT NOW’s largest fundraiser is a women’s weekend getaway, scheduled for January 26-27, 2019 at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara. Tickets go on sale through the PRESENT NOW website beginning on October 15, 2018. This year, a new two-night ticket option is available for PRESENT NOW supporters who want to take advantage of a full weekend mind/body experience.

“I believe,” says Melanie, “that in life, it isn’t always the grand gestures or big opportunities that change our lives, but the small, thoughtful moments that make the difference. And this is something we can all do every day!”

“Every child has a right to feel safe,” explains Erica.

Tom Rapier, a Palisades resident since 2002, has always been a photographer. He shot still photography in college, then pivoted to film and video, starting with local TV stations in his native Texas. Then in 1990, CBS Network News recruited him from Dallas and brought him to New York. Thus started a 28-year-long journey covering every story imaginable — travelling to all 50 states and all but one continent. (He somehow never made it to Antarctica.) He shot for the CBS Evening News, Morning News, Sunday Morning, and 60 Minutes. He covered Gulf Wars 1 and 2, the invasion of

Somalia, four Winter Olympics, the Brits’ handover of Hong Kong to China, Y2K in Sydney. He travelled the country on the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush presidential campaigns, plus every single national political convention from 1992 to 2016. He covered the election of Pope Francis at the Vatican. Rapier says, “I’ve been on an icebreaker north of Point Barrow, a tank in Saudi Arabia, a nuclear submarine in the Pacific. I’ve shot hundreds of interviews with movie stars, musicians, criminals, lawyers, real experts and wannabes, victims and heroes. Add to those the countless wildfires, the occasional hurricane, and the big Northridge

those footsteps myself, architecture has always been part of my visual palette.”

So now he’s turned his attention back to still photography, with a particular emphasis on architecture.

Rapier says that today he’s been paying particular attention to the design, color, and geometry of buildings that strike him. “I began to appreciate that individual buildings don’t just stand alone in our visual frame. Broadening our view to include the surrounding styles and designs gives us a completely different experience. In other words, all architecture has a relationship with its environment -- something I didn’t realize when I was driving around Lubbock showing off my Dad’s buildings.”

He told us, “Growing up in Lubbock, Texas, I was always so proud to drive around town pointing out to friends that this school or that hospital or the church over there was designed by my architect/engineer father. His influence certainly gave our family an awareness and appreciation of design. Two of my four siblings became architects. While I didn’t follow in 34 The Palisades | October/November 2018

STONE CARVED STATUE AT THE BATUAN TEMPLE


I KEPT TELLING MYSELF THAT WHEN THE TIME WAS RIGHT, I WOULD TRAVEL. AND I DID. -ALLIE LEBOS

I

’ve never considered myself the type to try to force things in life. I guess I’ve always been prone to the idea that what is meant for you will meet you halfway. Some may call this lazy, but I call it common sense. After graduating from UCSB about a year ago, I had the opportunity to go traveling like many other fortunate students do. I however, did not feel like life was meeting me halfway. Instead, I chose to become settled, find an apartment, and start this new chapter of my life in Los Angeles. I kept telling myself that when the time was right, I would travel. And I did.

A few days ago I returned from my first-ever international trip (Spring Break 2013 in Cancun definitely does not count). This was a real international trip. A trip literally to the other side of the world. A trip to Bali, Indonesia. Though Bali was a dream on my list, it wasn’t exactly my idea to go. In fact, this trip actually met me a little more than halfway. About six months ago my roommate booked it on impulse hoping that I would say yes. And I did.

PICTURED CLOCKWISE: ENJOYING THE VIEW AT NYANG-NYANG BEACH, OCEAN VISTA FROM THE ULUWATU TEMPLE, TEGALALANG RICE FIELDS

However, within the six months leading up to our October/November 2018  |  The Palisades 37


trip, life changed. My roommate and I began to drift apart, and our connection started to fade. I realized that I was utterly unhappy at my day job and began to wonder that even if this trip were the trip of a lifetime, what would I be returning to in Los Angeles? A tense home, a purposeless job, and a complete lack of direction? The answer wasn’t too comforting. But still, the days counted down and before I knew it, August 21st had arrived. I felt unsure about everything, including my ability to follow through with this trip. What if I couldn’t do it? What if I wasn’t smart enough, or cultured enough, or ready enough? I simply felt unprepared, but given my perfectionist nature, I’m not really sure that I ever would have been ready. So, I went. I stayed in Bali for two weeks, managing to visit Seminyak, Ubud, Canggu and Uluwatu. I saw more than I ever thought I would, and did

I SAW MORE THAN I EVER THOUGHT I WOULD, AND DID MORE THAN I EVER THOUGHT I COULD. -ALLIE LEBOS

more than I ever thought I could. It would be easy for me to sit here and tell you all about the most luxurious spas, the best beach clubs, and the most breathtaking temples. But in my opinion, that simply wouldn’t be doing this trip justice. The reality is that you can find all of that information with the simple click of a Google search. And I won’t pretend like I didn’t indulge in those things, because I absolutely did; but as amazing and fun as they were, they are not what made this trip special. So, I would rather share with you what you can’t find, unless you experience it. No matter how many times you hear it or read about it, nothing will prepare you for the warmth and kindness that you will be met with by the Balinese. Though they are a culture of unwavering tradition, they are welcoming and open to all, withholding any sort of judgment or animosity. 38 The Palisades  |  October/November 2018


They exude happiness, but it is the kind of happiness that many of us over here are not too familiar with. It is the kind of happiness that stems from genuine gratitude. Given that Bali is still an “underdeveloped” country by many standards, this came as a surprise to me. So often you hear people mention how traveling to less “fortunate” countries will make you so much more thankful to live in your own. Though it is a sentiment that I do understand, I no longer think that it is quite that simple. For one, the definition of fortune is very different for many. Just ask Adi, a driver who I met in Ubud. Adi was one of the most engaging and enlightening people I met on my trip. We met him on our way out of the monkey forest, wanting to find a ride to the Tegalalang rice fields. Luckily, he worked for one of the local taxis in the village right outside of the forest. Adi enriched our experience unlike any other. From describing the ins and outs of ceremonies, to explaining the (somewhat outdated) gender roles that the culture has maintained, he was able to teach us more than I ever could have hoped to learn. One thing that I found to be most interesting is the fact that even though religion and spirituality lie at the heart of their society, the Balinese often become pregnant before they are married. Though they believe in romantic love and commitment, their number one priority is that of having children, which thoroughly shows. Children in Bali are truly worshiped, and it is a kind of purity that makes you question how the

system in our own country treats children. Eventually, I asked Adi if he had any children of his own, and he did. He told me he has a baby girl named Asheera, which ironically means, fortune. After meeting Adi, the course of my trip was changed. I realized what this magical island was supposed to teach me and what it could teach all of us. It is the wisdom of accountability and responsibility in one’s own happiness. It is the innate trust in one’s own ability to cultivate a life that has both purpose and pleasure. It is the simplicity of being grateful for all that you have been given. As you walk down the streets in Bali you will see little woven baskets with an assortment of items in them, from flowers, to fruit, to incense. These beautiful crafts are offerings made to the Hindu Gods, giving thanks for all that those in Bali have been blessed with. These people, who to so many have so little, truly feel that they have the world. And now I see that to think otherwise is not only condescending but also wrong. Though nothing is ever perfect, their way of life is just that, theirs. And compared to most, it is truly quite beautiful. Now that I have returned home, I have brought with me a new sense of capability and a new sense of knowing within myself. And though I may be unsure of many things in my current situation, one thing that I am certain of is my ability to progress forward, so long as I remain accountable, grateful and trusting. And I think I will.

Bringing joy and calm to a client’s life is Gary’s top priority. “We have a plan and process that is successful in creating peace of mind for our clients, and allows them to not worry about the next headline, recession or geo-political event,” he says. “They’ve all worked hard.... without being scared of outliving their savings.” Gary embraces that philosophy in his own life, which is part of why he and his family moved from Malibu to Pacific Palisades over 5 years ago. With a number of clients in the Palisades, he saw how comfortable and convenient their lifestyle was, and he wanted that for his wife Lacie and their sons Cameron (7) and Luke (4). “It’s just a special place. Everyone in the Palisades feels like a neighbor and it’s a true cohesive community. It doesn’t hurt that we are easily accessible to both the beach and the town,” he says. “The Palisades has a lot of great people,” Gary says. “All of the residents and local business owners have just been phenomenal. It’s not only safe, but also fun and enjoyable just to walk around the neighborhood.” It’s also great to have SEIA founding partner, Paul Taghibagi, and Chief Investment Officer, Deron McCoy, as nearby neighbors and Palisadians! So, what’s next for Gary and SEIA? “We’ve always had a dream of walking to work, and that means having a local presence in the Palisades,” he says. “Having an office in the Village is something we are absolutely exploring.” With the growing number of satisfied clients, that dream could soon become a reality.

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” —Oscar de la Renta

Y

ou know that feeling you get when you’re content and satisfied. When your outsides match your insides and you feel prepared to take on the day? Sometimes, that feeling can be elusive, but it doesn’t have to be. For some people, knowing exactly what to wear to match their mood and their day’s purpose is as easy as breathing. For those of you who don’t fall under that category, allow us to introduce Style Salon. Style Salon is a business which helps women achieve their own personal style and create a wardrobe that is effortless. Jill Bronstein, creator of Style Salon, understands her client’s needs and guides them towards pieces that will go beyond their usual staples, that will help create a true sense of style. Instead of clothes being the focal point, it’s always about the client’s sense of comfort. “My aim is to dress my clients to fit their lifestyle, body type and personality, rather than focusing solely on the trends.” Jill says, “because of my background in both fashion 44 The Palisades | October/November 2018

and psychology, I want my clients to feel good by looking good and to feel comfortable in their own skin.” Having been a licensed psychotherapist for over a decade, she encouraged her clients to better understand themselves in order to make healthier life choices. “In a sense, I was an early version of a life coach, before that term existed.” As a result, her transition to becoming a personal stylist has incorporated her listening skills and desire to help her clients be authentic. Jill begins the process with a closet edit. Visiting her client’s closets gives her a clear sense of who they are. Her gentle, effective approach helps her clients clear the clutter and unload the clothes that no longer serve them. Lifestyle is an important factor when deciding what to keep or discard. The EDIT is also a way for Jill to determine which colors, fabrics, silhouettes and styles her clients gravitate towards. “It’s the best information I


STYLE SALON 310.386.9948 www.stylesalon.clothing jill@stylesalon.clothing Instagram @stylesalonla

can get on a client’s preferences and, in return, they will have a well-organized closet full of wearable items.” On to the next step; SHOPPING. For some, this is an exciting part of the process, but there are others who can be overwhelmed with choices. Jill recommends that her clients shop with her, at least initially, to get to know their style and fit, but some busy clients prefer her to shop for them. Although she has her “go-to” stores, she is happy to shop where clients are most comfortable. “I try to be respectful and consider the process a two-way street,” Jill shares, “with my knowledge of fashion and their awareness of their body, lifestyle, and budget, together we accomplish effortless looks for everyday or special events.” She’s excited for the Palisades Village to be a new shopping resource for her clients.

The final step is STYLING. Jill helps clients curate outfits in different combinations, so that they can achieve a variety of looks to have on hand. Some clients take photos of the different outfits for reference and others hang the pieces together in order to get out the door stress-free. Her clients range from sleep deprived new moms to women looking to distinguish their style from their mothers or daughters to busy working women and men, all wanting to capture the effortless Los Angeles style. For a style consultation or to book an appointment, please contact Jill directly.

chophouse hash INGREDIENTS CHOPHOUSE HASH

and oyster, but whatever is available is great; just make sure to brush off any dirt you find before cooking.

• 5oz. leftover steak, cut into ½ inch cubes • 1 bunch asparagus peeled, 1 inch pieces • 1 cup mixed mushrooms, cut in bite size pieces • 1 cup reserved crispy potatoes • 2oz. olive oil • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter • 4 each large eggs • 1 bunch watercress • 4oz chimichurri • Kosher salt and black pepper

Over a medium flame, heat a large sauté pan with 2 oz. of olive oil to coat. Once oil is hot and starts to shimmer, sauté mushrooms, leftover steak and asparagus until golden and tender, seasoning with salt and black pepper. Separately in a non-stick pan, heat one teaspoon butter until just foamy; then cook 2 eggs sunny side up, seasoning with salt and black pepper. Cook eggs until all whites are set and yolk is still runny. Plate your hash and top with crispy breakfast potatoes. Garnish with watercress and chimichurri.

DIRECTIONS

INGREDIENTS

At the restaurant, we use ribeye steak for our hash but really, any meat cut up in small pieces will do. We like meatier mushrooms as well and use an assortment of shiitake, miatake, beech

CHIMICHURRI

58 The Palisades  |  October/November 2018

• 1 each small jalapeño, seeded • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed • 1½ cups extra virgin olive oil

• • • • •

1 cup cilantro, washed and picked 1 cup parsley, washed and picked 1/4 cup red onion, minced 1 pinch ground cumin Kosher salt to taste

DIRECTIONS Wash all your herbs on the stem; this will make them easier to dry with a quick shake over the sink and pat dry with paper towels. Pick the herbs and mix; reserve ¼ cup if you are going to make the breakfast potatoes to follow. Halve jalapeño lengthwise, and remove stem and seeds. Place the oil, garlic and jalapeño in the blender on low, then high to liquify completely. Add the picked herbs and pulse until a course mash is achieved. Season with salt and a pinch of cumin to taste. This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated but will need to sit at room temperature to melt the olive oil before serving.


crispy breakfast potatoes INGREDIENTS CRISPY BREAKFAST POTATOES • • • • • •

2 each leftover baked potato 1 teaspoon granulated garlic 1 pinch crushed red pepper ½ cup reserved picked herbs Kosher salt to taste Canola oil for frying

DIRECTIONS These are great served alone as a side and we also use them in our chophouse hash. Leftover baked potatoes work best but if you don’t have any, wash russet potatoes well, scrubbing away any dirt. Pierce the skin with a fork on all sides; about 12 pokes should do. Bake on a sheet tray with a rack at 350 F for 1 hour (if you don’t have a rack, rotate the potatoes a couple of times). The potato should be completely soft to the touch. Let cool to room temperature

and then break into rough chunks with your hands. Fill a sauce pot half way with canola oil. Over medium flame, bring oil to 375 F using a thermometer. Carefully place potato chunks in the oil and deep fry until golden. Right as the potatoes are almost ready, throw in your reserved herbs, and stand back as they will pop a bit. Scoop out fried potatoes and herbs and let drain on some paper towels. Season immediately with granulated garlic, red pepper flakes and plenty of kosher salt.

INGREDIENTS YOGURT & GRANOLA FRUIT BOWL • 2 cups seasonal fresh fruit cut into bite-size pieces • 2 tablespoons raw honey • 1 cup organic Greek yogurt
